Successful Diets part 2

The DASH diet is also known as Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension. This diet was first introduced to lower high (and normal) blood pressure but has also been found to help “lower cardiovascular risk” and “prevent or reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases, diabetes diabetes, kidney disease and gout.”

The DASH diet includes “fruits, vegetables, low fat milk, whole grains, fish, poultry, beans and nuts”.  “It recommends reducing sodium, foods and beverages with added sugars (“5 servings or less a week”) and red meat.” The DASH diet reduces saturated fat “while increasing the intake of potassium, magnesium, calcium, protein and fiber” which “help control blood pressure”.
